Giant LEGO® Brick Animal Trail returns to WWT Slimbridge
7 July - 22 September 2018 (Saturdays and Sundays only)
The popular Giant LEGO® Brick Animal Trail is heading to WWT Slimbridge from the 7th of July until the 223rd of September, inspired by species from across the WWT sites in a specially designed trail featuring brand new life-size animal characters.
The 2018 Trail includes three distinctive LEGO® animals to be discovered as you wander around WWT Slimbridge, joining some of the favourites Flavia the Flamingo and Lottie the Otter. You will meet new bricks on the block - Sam the short-eared owl, Walter the water vole, and Skye the stork. It’s a must see day out for Lego fans of all ages!
A recent Lego Trail visitor commented:
“Beautiful place – we all loved it. Our children really enjoyed searching for the giant Lego animals!”
The trail across Slimbridge Wetland Centre features fourteen 1.5m LEGO® animal models in total, including a Hawaiian goose or nene (the world’s rarest goose), a huge kingfisher, and a giant frog. Each sculpture is built by professional LEGO® builders, taking hundreds of hours and using 253,728 bricks in total. The new short-eared owl took 80 hours to create.
To complete the ultimate LEGO® animal experience we are offering LEGO® building workshops throughout the duration of the Trail on weekends, and most weekdays from the end of July. These will be led by our professionally trained LEGO® builders, by the experts themselves from Bright Bricks, and are open to LEGO® enthusiasts of all ages who want to have a go at building their own mini-versions.
Be sure to book your place on one of our ever-popular LEGO® workshops with one of our experts.
Take part in exciting challenges and build your very own miniature version of Sam the short-eared owl to take home!
Sue Steele, a parent of a LEGO® workshop participant commented:
“Our children aged 6 and 9 loved the LEGO® session. The tutors were enthusiastic and supportive and very good at encouraging the children. I would highly recommend this session to other families.”
